Domain Name Description


A domain name is an internet address identifying a computer site connected to the internet in the same way that a telephone number uniquely identifies a telephone line connected to the global telephone network. No two organizations can have the same domain name.


Domain Name Cancellation


In our century, internet and the services via internet became one of the most important aspect for the globalization or the world and is being accepted as the most important invention of our century. The developments in the internet network not only caused changes and new implementations in every area of our daily life, but also reinforced the implementations in the industrial and intellectual property protection matters. Accordingly, the domain names gained a vital importance for the companies as they became the distinguishing aspect.


However, unfair gains are obtained by third parties who are acting in bad faith and registering the domain names with small costs and who sells such domain names to the real owners with expensive and huge amounts.


Accordingly, if a domain name registration is infringing the trademark or name of any company or person and creating unfair competition; legal actions can be started against such domain name registration and then preliminary injunction can be requested from the court.

In addition, the complaints may be filed with World Intellectual Property Organization Arbitration and Mediation Center and the following criterias shall be met in order for the cancellation of a domain name registration;


A. The domain name(s) shall be identical or confusingly similar to a trademark or service mark in which the Complainant has rights
B.  The Respondent shall have no rights or legitimate interests in respect of the domain name(s);
C. The domain name(s) shall be registered and being used in bad faith.
